The Alta Community Center will be hosting a blood drive on Thursday, Aug. 21 from 2 to 7 p.m.
To be eligible to donate blood, individuals must be at least 16 year of age; however there is no upper age limit as long as the donor is in good health. Donors under the age of 17 require parental consent. In addition, donors need to weigh at least 110 pounds and have not donated whole blood in the past 56 days. A photo I.D. is required at the time of registration.
